Wingspan is built on a supportive network of highly-motivated students throughout the USA who want to help the organizations in their community, expanding Wingspan’s positive impact far beyond the San Francisco Bay Area. Each Wingspan Branch oversees a state, province, or designated geographic service area. Branches are filled with local leaders who wish to utilize Wingspan's 3 R's to further their community goals and Wingspan’s mission of helping organizations and communities.
The 3 R’s:
Reputation - Being part of a larger nationwide organization lends your branch greater credibility. The affiliation opens the door to more opportunities for community outreach.
Resources - Branches can receive incredible financial help, human capital, ready-made materials, guides, and advice from other branches and from the Executive Team.
Reach - Branches are connected to a nationwide network of supportive similarly-driven high schoolers to help with planning and executing otherwise challenging initiatives.
Branches have tremendous flexibility in how they choose to serve their communities best. However, all Wingspan Branches follow a two-element core of consistent educational opportunities, like workshops or volunteering, punctuated by larger community-partnered events.
